Tan Towels Review

Yesterday I was shopping at my local Cosmoprof and saw that they sold Tan Towels.  I have been wanting to try a self tanner for awhile now but was a bit apprehensive because I'm so fair.  I have used Jergen's Natural Glow lotion and have been happy with that but I wanted to try something that would give me more instant results.  I have to say after using one of the Tan Towels last night, I am quite impressed.  It didn't get me as dark as I thought it would but I definitely have a lot more color.  I purchased the all over face and body towels for light to medium skin tones.  I think I may try the darker ones eventually when I'm already wearing the lighter Tan Towel so it's not such a jump from light to dark. 

The towelette itself was really easy to apply.  I applied a bit of moisturizer to my elbows, knees, ankles and knuckles 1st because I know that self tanners tend to grab more on dryer parts of the skin.  I started on my legs and rubbed the towel on my skin from thighs to feet, avoiding the knees and ankles.  Then I did my arms, skipping the elbows, upper body, back and face.  Because the towel is so large it was easy to reach the hard to reach areas on my back.  I then went back to my ankles, knees and elbows once I'd used up most of the towel. 

I'm really happy with how it turned out!  It's not streaky or orangey at all.  It has a bit of that self tanner smell but it's really not strong at all.  It's not even as strong as the Jergen's Natural Glow Lotion.  I would definitely recommend these if you're looking for a self tanner.

  1. I usually use Jergens Foam and that works well too, but I'm tempted to try the towels now!
